with reporters. peter alexander is live at romney headquarters if boston. peter, what's the vibe there? >> reporter: s.e., we can show you live pictures of what's happening right now. mitt romney is touching down in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. you noted the earlier stop in ohio. it was the romney campaign plan for him to go to ohio. governor romney said as long as they're out there, why don't we find another place to stop as well? that's where they came up with pennsylvania. this is significant because one of those states, ohio with 18 electoral votes, is a place he showered with attention. pennsylvania is one that he has largely ignored. here campaign advisers continue to be exceedingly confident he'll do well tonight. i spoke to a source close to the campaign a few minutes ago who said vadz is the lynchpin this evening. it's one of the first states to report back at 7:00 whenle polls close, and they say that's a place to give them a better sense of which direction this night will go. it's a state that the republicans know that they need to win tonight. beyond that advisers say that gov
hoped for. msnbc's chris jansing is outside headquarters in boston. it's eerie how quiet it is. there's nothing going on behind you. that's not the way they thought this was going to be the morning after the election. >> to say the least. and you mentioned mitt romney had spent almost seven years for president. it was over in about five minutes. a short of gracious concession speech. but that was preceded, chuck, by 90 of what were thought to be bizarre minutes where the media called for barack obama. and some for mitt romney said they would contest it there. at one point ryan got in his van and returned to the hotel. there was a question even when they said he was coming over here to make remarks whether it would be a concession speech. about an hour and a half after the networks called it, the mitt romney did call the president and then came into this ballroom for what i said was a very brief and very gracious final comment. so after one of the most -- the most expensive presidential race in history and one of the most acrimonious, mitt romney called for unity. >> the nation as you

will see him in chicago. mitt romney will be in boston tomorrow night. hoping for a different outcome than john mccain had four years ago at that sad rally in arizona. before romney gets to boston he will still be on the trail in ohio and in pennsylvania. before the nation renders a verdict on not just a president, but a presidency whose achievements have been seen as almost beside the point in assessing whether the president gets a second term, it's the virtue of this campaign or it's the damning criticism of this campaign to know that this decision has been set up for the american people as if it has very little to do with what this president has done with his last four years. it's not been about his record. it's been about a character kature of his record. and that's why that list of things that have happened in the past four years maybe seems unfamiliar. you'd think after a campaign this long, we could memorize that list, but that's not what it's been about. if barack obama gets a second term, given the achievements of this past four years, he will likely be enshrined as being one of t
if it's needed. i know the republican governor there is pressuring, there's pressure on boston, if it qualifies for a recount they would like the romney folks not ask for one. >> well, that's some real reporting. thank you very much, chuck todd, as always. joining me now, chris cillizza, msnbc political analyst. chris cillizza, what about the fiscal cliff and negotiations? what do you think the president is doing and planning and how engaged personally will he be in trying to avoid what obviously is a messy way to start a second term? >> well i think that chuck is right, there are still -- they are making sure that everyone on their team is kind of decided where they want to go. my guess would be, andrea, he's actually pretty engaged only because he's learned the lessons of his first term particularly on health care where it was sort of a well let's let congress work its will and we'll step in and get a bill together and get something done. obviously that process took a lot longer than the white house would have liked. it was significantly more contentious than the white house

the numbers? are they pumping it out systematically, professionally? >> my guess is somebody in boston is trying to do this, but i will say this, looking at the numbers and looking at the battleground states, we felt very good going into this race last night. if you look at the stability in this race over the last two or three weeks, i think it certainly favored the president in a big way. we woke up this morning, chris, with nine battleground states, and we've had nine battleground states for months, and there's not one state of those nine that the romney people thought this morning was definitely put away for them. so, look, we've got a lot more paths to 270 than they do as chuck talked about. i feel very, very good right now. i will say this, you started the show by exhorting people to get out there and exercise their right to vote. look, get out there, stand in line, if you're in line when the polls close, they'll have to let you vote. so go out there and make sure that your voice is heard. it's way too important to sit this one out. get in line, have your voice heard. if you're th

news that romney was, quote, shell-shocked when he realized he lost. "the boston globe" said the campaign had planned a big fireworks show to celebrate the victo victory. for a few moments, it was actually online and really to go. and it includes plans for the inauguration. and it says he's working on a smooth transfer of power. but now mid romney is a private citiz citizen. he doesn't have secret service protection. the campaign aides say the credit cards have been cut off and supporters say he's likely to move to his home in california. i think he just fades, says one top donor. i think we have seen for the most part the last of mitt romney. but for the party he's leaving behind, the debate is just beginning. does the gop adapt, or does it fade into relevance? is this the party of lincoln or the party of rush limbaugh. joining me is megan mccain, columnist for "the daily beast and msnbc contributor. on election night she tweeted, quote, my party has to evolve or it's gooding to die. hogan go aheadly, he's worked for both rick santorum and mike huckabee. thank you both for j

'm chris matthews up in boston. let me start with this petraeus sex story. sex, sex, sex, that's what it's about. the testy, seamy search for something wild in the button down world of spies, spooks, whatever they call themselves these days, and the shined boots and chest medals of the combat elite. a general has an affair with a young reporter. that young reporter spies some competition, tells her to bug off. meanwhile, that competition becomes the target of tens of thousands of e-mails from yet another general. what a soap opera. but guess what? one of the generals, actually an ex-general, is head of the cia, or just was. the other general, the one sending the e-mail by the bushel, is our commander in charge in afghanistan. if this were a british plot, and it sure is kinky enough, we'd be calling it "carry on generals," but there are stakes. and one of them is our country's security. let's not forget as we dig deeper that fact into this plot tonight. joining us right now is "washington post" reporter sari horwitz and david woods, senior military correspondent for "the huffington post."

soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee
, their boston headquarters. wrap your head around that. karl rove whose failure to win victories at the helm of the cross roads had this defense on tuesday. >> he succeeded by suppressing the vote, by saying to people, you play not like who i am and i know you can't bring yourself to vote for me, but i'm going to paint this other guy as simply a rich guy who only cares about himself. >> remember the team romney and the republicans outspent team obama the democrats in the last three months of this campaign. actually in the entire campaign. >>> while president obama is already getting knee deposition in the second term issue, the fiscal cliff, he also had some house keeping to do in his cabin cabinet, mainly replacing a handful of high profile secretaries, including hillary clinton, tg, tim geithner, leon panetta. they're all expected to leave sometime in the next few months, possibly, even before the end of the year. secretary of state hillary clinton repeatedly said she's on her way out. >> i want to then take some time to get reconnected to, you know, the stuff that makes life worth living.
of that post-9/11 generation that served in iraq and afghanistan and joins me now from boston. joe, great to see you. tell me about what made you want to serve and you did two tours, i think? >> that's right. one in iraq and one in afghanistan. >> and one in afghanistan. you, obviously, we've known for you for a long time. your parents, doris kearns goodwin, and your father, of course, are well known to many of us. but you were unusual coming out of harvard. what about your -- the men and women with whom you served and how they are readjusting to life back home. >> absolutely. i think there's no doubt that the six years on active duty, over the course of eight that i spent in the army was incredibly valuable. i got a lot more out of it than i put in, because i got to serve with a group of men and women whose dedication to duty, honor, and country, their dedication was so inspiring. and i think there has been a trough transition for a lot of people coming home from these conflicts. you know, it's not just sort of the things you have to see or the actions you have to take, but it's also the

to play the role of leader of the republican party. the boston globe reported that mr. romney is likely to move to la jolla, california, to spend more time with his car, presumably. but in his short time as leader of the republican party, when he was their presidential nominee, he made leadership decisions about the party. about what the party's like. about what the party looks like to the rest of the country. he made leadership decisions particularly in terms of who he would dignify with his embrace. who among everybody in the republican party, he, mitt romney, leader of the party, would privilege. who he would elevate. he elevated guys like chris cobach. the republican guy who wrote arizona's papers please immigration law. he was mitt romney's immigration adviser. he made and then kept as his national campaign chairman a man named john sununu who called president obama lazy and not very bright and said president obama needs to, quote, learn how to be an american. mitt romney's national campaign chairman. mr. romney also elevated and dignified by his presence, i'm sorry to have to say
